    The preacher man says it’s the end of time
    And the Mississippi River she’s a goin’ dry
    The interest is up and the Stock Markets down
    And you only get mugged
    If you go down town

    I live back in the woods, you see
    A woman and the kids, and the dogs and me
    I got a shotgun rifle and a 4-wheel drive
    And a country boy can survive
    Country folks can survive

    I can plow a field all day long
    I can catch catfish from dusk till dawn
    We make our own whiskey and our own smoke too
    Ain’t too many things these ole boys can’t do
    We grow good ole tomatoes and homemade wine
    And a country boy can survive
    Country folks can survive

    Because you can’t starve us out
    And you cant makes us run
    Cause one-of- ‘em old boys raisin ole shotgun
    And we say grace and we say Ma’am
    And if you ain’t into that we don’t give a damn

    We came from the West Virginia coalmines
    And the Rocky Mountains and the and the western skies
    And we can skin a buck; we can run a trot-line
    And a country boy can survive
    Country folks can survive

    I had a good friend in New York City
    He never called me by my name, just hillbilly
    My grandpa taught me how to live off the land
    And his taught him to be a businessman
    He used to send me pictures of the Broadway nights
    And I’d send him some homemade wine

    But he was killed by a man with a switchblade knife
    For 43 dollars my friend lost his life
    Id love to spit some beechnut in that dudes eyes
    And shoot him with my old 45
    Cause a country boy can survive
    Country folks can survive

    Cause you can’t starve us out and you can’t make us run
    Cause one-of- ‘em old boys raisin ole shotgun
    And we say grace and we say Ma’am
    And if you ain’t into that we don’t give a damn

    We’re from North California and south Alabam
    And little towns all around this land
    And we can skin a buck; we can run a trot-line
    And a country boy can survive
    Country folks can survive

    Go Hank Jr. The only problem now is finding them there bullets for the ole 45. Pretty scarce and cost lots of $$$$$$.

    Well since we are just having some good old country boy backporch singing get your banjo and sing along.

    I had a hen
    she wouldn't lay no eggs
    I had a hen
    she wouldn't lay no eggs
    till the rooster came in the yard
    and he caught my hen out behind the barn

    she's layin eggs now
    she's laying eggs now
    since the rooster came in the yard
    she's laying eggs now
    she's laying eggs now
    since the rooster came in the yard

    I had a dog
    she couldn't have no pups
    I had a dog
    she couldn't have no pups
    till the rooster came in the yard
    and he caught my dog
    out behind the barn

    she's having bird dogs
    she's having bird dogs
    since the rooster came in the yard
    She's having bird dogs
    she's having bird dogs
    since the rooster came in the yard

    I had a cow
    she wouldn't give no milk
    I had a cow
    she wouldn't give no milk
    till the rooster came in the yard
    and caught my cow
    out behind the barn

    she's giving egg nog
    she's giving egg nog
    since the rooster cam in the yard
    she's giving egg nog
    she's giving egg nog
    since the rooster came in the yard

    now the best verse
    cause it's the last vers

    I had an aunt
    she couldn't have no kids
    I had an aunt
    she couldn't have no kids
    till the rooster came in the yard
    and he caught my aunt
    out behind the barn :eek:

    We're having fried rooster
    we're having fried rooster
    since the rooster came in the yard
    we're having fried rooster
    we;re having fried rooster
    since the rooster came in the yard
    and he caught my aunt out behind the barn

    Ok . here is another favorite

    Grandpa, tell me 'bout the good old days
    Sometimes it feels like this worlds gone crazy
    Grandpa, take me back to yesterday
    When the line between right and wrong
    Didn't seem so hazy

    (Chorus)

    Did lovers really fall in love to stay
    And stand beside each other, come what may
    Was a promise really something people kept
    Not just something they would say
    Did families really bow their heads to pray
    Did daddies really never go away
    Woah oh, grandpa, tell me 'bout the good old days

    Grandpa, everything is changing fast
    We call it progress, but I just don't know
    And grandpa, Let's wander back into the past
    And paint me the picture of long ago


    Did lovers really fall in love to stay
    And stand beside each other come what may
    Was a promise really something people kept
    Not just something they would say and then forget
    Did families really bow their heads to pray
    Did daddies really never go away
    Woah oh, grandpa, tell me 'bout the good old days
    Woah oh, grandpa, tell me 'bout the good old days


    Mhmm, mhmm, mhmmm, mhmm, mhmm,
    mhmm mhmm

    Mhmm, mhmm, mhmmm, mhmm, mhmm,
    mhmm mhmm

    Did families really bow their heads to pray?
    Did daddies really never go away?
